Dear NAMD developers,

I am using NAMD on an Intel Woodcrest cluster (core 2 duo dual). Although
NAMD runs smoothly, the scaleup is quite unsatisfactory. Is there any plan
to release binaries for NAMD on this architecture ? Here are the detailed

Computing nodes
    Dell GX260 SFF, 2.66 GHz, i845G, 533 MHz FSB, 1 GB, 120 GB (7200rpm, 8
MB buffer, U100)

    HP ProCurve 4108gl, 36 Gbps, 6x HP ProCurve 100/1000T gl 6-port

We have not succeeded in compiling NAMD on the cluster locally.

Any help will be appreciated,
